RESEARCH

Research inspired by autistic individuals is essential, adhering to the principle of "Nothing about us without us." Susan Golubock, a retired occupational therapist who is also autistic, spearheaded the investigation into the Neuro-Strengths-Based Support for Autism framework.

NEURO STRENGTHS BASED SUPPORT FOR AUTISM (NSBSA)

A better understanding of the neurological differences in autism might result in more effective coordination between disparate behavioral, developmental, educational, therapeutic, medical, and family-based approaches. Neuro-Strength-Based Support for Autism (NSBSA) attempts to translate neuroscience research into terms that autistics and their support network can understand.

 

Rather than a new approach to intervention, the NSBSA is a unifying framework for understanding autism that all therapists, educators, clinicians, and parents can use to help improve the functional abilities and desires of the autistic individuals they support. It was developed by an Autistic Occupational Therapist based on her professional and lived experience.
